Bridge the gap between good intentions and real results
Instructional Leadership is one of the most researched and discussed leadership practices, but most school leaders don’t know where to begin or how to balance this role with all of their other responsibilities. Peter DeWitt’s Instructional Leadership provides practical tools for delivering lasting improvement through small, manageable changes over time.
This step-by-step, how-to guide presents the six driving forces of instructional leadership—implementation, focus on learning, student engagement, instructional strategies, efficacy, and evaluation of impact—within an easy-to-follow, multi-stage implementation model. It also includes:
· Practical strategies grounded in research
· “Entry point” sections highlighting the best places to start
· Help working with PLCs, faculty meetings, teacher observations, and walkthroughs
· Study questions
As a leader, you are the guide for your teachers, staff, and students. Let this book guide you to a vision of instructional leadership that really works.
